The San Diego Padres should be World Series contenders this fall, which means they'll likely be active at the MLB Trade Deadline to bolster their roster. Top teams can always use more quality starting pitching, and the Padres may be in the market, especially with DInelson Lamet's current injury troubles.

Kansas City Royals starter Danny Duffy has emerged as a potential trade target for San Diego.

Danny Duffy Trade Rumors

The Padres will reportedly be evaluating Duffy during his start on Monday against the Boston Red Sox as they look for pitching help. A standout performance could motivate San Diego to expedite talks given the trade market is starting to heat up ahead of July.

Duffy is currently working his way back from a left forearm strain that caused him to miss more than a month. He currently sports a 4-3 record with a 1.81 ERA and 53 strikeouts across 44.2 innings pitched.

As a standout player who's stranded on a struggling team, Duffy is a perfect candidate to be scooped up by a contender at the deadline. San Diego has a legitimate shot at winning the World Series this season, and this is the kind of all-in move championship hopefuls make.
